Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Tracy Schiebe and her voters for helping us donate to our injured United States military veterans!

What would you recommend to others who want to be fit and healthy?

You gotta start somewhere! We all say we don’t have the time, so make time, at home workouts don’t work for me because home is my COMFORT ZONE! Being fit is about getting out of your comfort zone, and the more you do it the more results you’ll see!! I have had to take the plunge and get involved in classes that I literally SQUEEZE into my schedule... and it’s the best thing I’ve ever done!! I feel so proud after a HIIT workout! I never thought I could do this

How does fitness positively influence your life?

The list is endless... I have PCOS, am diabetic and have metabolic syndrome... on top of that I am insulin resistant... so I watch what I eat, and HAVE to burn off extra calories as my body turns just about everything into fat! Through diet and exercise I’ve managed to drop down from a size 18 to a size 4!!! Years ago I couldnt sit upright longer than 1/2 hour from a bad back. Im still new to kickboxing, and my core has strengthened so I no longer require a back brace to drive my bus

If you were the next Ms Health and Fitness, what would you do with $20,000?

I’m not an athlete, Im a single mom who lost 80 lbs, works full time, has 2 dogs, a teenage daughter and an adult son in a wheelchair with Cerebral Palsy. $20,000 would definitely go far!! I’ll start by paying off some bills... and with the rest of the money, I’ll rent a motorhome and drive across the country with my kids! All 4 of them 🥰 Having a son in a wheelchair and the dogs makes it difficult to travel all together but with a motorhome no one gets left behind!
